Geometric Abstraction and Painterly Automatism are two key types of Abstract Art. Geometric Abstraction refers to a style whose dominators are geometric shapes like squares, rectangles, triangles and rounds, etc. While geometric abstraction emphasizes the conceptual, intellectual side of art, Painterly Automatism is about emotionality and spontaneity. "Painterly" refers to a seemingly unfinished technique of painting, in which the brushstroke remains clearly visible and serves as a means of expression. "Automatism" refers to the intuitive and spontaneous aspect of painting, as if the paint is applied without thinking.
Musa, our crafty up-and-coming artisan creates this Painterly Automatism Batik painting made of silk by using canting, a tool that acts like a pen which dispenses hot wax to resist dyes from penetrating unwanted areas. The method can be classified as Batik Tulis. The artisan creatively blends colours like magenta, fuchsia and purple into a harmonious work of art. In general, purple symbolizes royalty, nobility, spirituality, ceremony, mysterious, transformation, wisdom, and englightenment; whilst lavender symbolized femininity, grace and elegance.
